Finally got around to put some paint on these! Just a quick paint job, about 1 hour per model (that's a long time for me, most figures get 15-30 minutes each - or less).

Image

Fire Clan.

Image

Water Clan. I'm going to remount all of these onto clear bases which is why no one has their bases painted.

Image

Closeup of the regular guys, these are my favorite.

Image

Same but for the Water guys.

Image

Octopodes on the hats (yes, that's the correct plural since it's a Greek word). The one one the left is based off the Blue-Ringed Octopus and the other was based one someone else's painting I saw.

Image

Backs of the miniatures. All of the blue is airbrush work to save time. Nothing was brush painted except the wash at the end which was very very light. Even on such a small model, you can get so much contrast with just an airbrush.

Image


The big octopus guy.

Image

Commanders (I guess) of the Water clan.

Image

This picture shows how I did some of the masking on these figures. In order to airbrush highlights on the black mask, I applied masking fluid over some blue tack. The blue tack is there to pull off the masking fluid more easily (sometime the thin layer of masking fluid gets covered in paint and it's hard to remove - to make it easier, just make a little handle of blue tack that you can pull off.

I tried a new method for painting a vibrant red. All done with an airbrush except the last step. Purple shadows, red basecoat, white pre-highlight, and orange highlight directly over the white. The white makes the orange show up much better on the red. The key is only to use a little bit of the white to let the orange blend with the red. Finally I added a mix of a red wash with airbrush thinner, water, and matte medium to blend all of the colors.

That is great stuff!

And I am seriously jealous of anyone who has any of those clan models! I am really late to the party, but have managed to get some shrine ninjas to tide me over.

Those are lovely; I hope you post pictures of the Ika / water clan once you get them on clear bases.

I had some downtime at work after setting up for a show and I had my Ninja All Star figures in the car, a professional photographer, and two coworkers that wanted to model so I ended up with these.

The buildings are from Plastcraft Game's new Colored Fukei line. I made a tutorial on making the board in the previous blog post. I wish my clear plastic bases would have arrived before this but they won't be here until tomorrow :(

As a Bushido player, this is really great to see. Fantastic painted miniatures.
